Daan Viljoen Game Park
The Daan Viljoen Game Park was proclaimed in 1968 and is, with only 39.53 sqkm one of Namibia’s smallest parks.
Daan Viljoen, categorized by IUCN in category II, is only 25 kms from Windhoek and thus a popular weekend retreat for many people. You can experience the “typical” Namibian savannah game, including Wildebeest, Giraffe, Oryx, Kudu and the grand Waterbuck. The accommodation facilities were privatized in 2012.
To Do and See
- Game viewing
- Bird watching
- Hiking (one of the few parks where you may leave your car)
How to get here

The only facility in the park is the luxury Sun Karros Lodge with its own camping sites and public facilities (against a fee of N$ 100 per person 5+ years (N$ 70 can be used at the Restaurant); e.g. swimming pool, restaurant)
